I also drove slow as heck. After installing them at my new place, 4 started up fine but this unit would not turn on at all.About 5 attempts later, it did actually turn on and started into its boot sequence (normally takes 5-8min with my 8 drives fully loaded), but a few minutes in power just completely shut off. Now it no longer turns on at all. Therefore, this unit is for sale and I bought myself a new DS1821+ as a replacement. The tech at that time said it was a power supply issue, so this makes me think that it's the same thing wrong this time, but I make no guarantees. This is perfect for the person who is experienced in computer repair and if the power supply is the problem, knows how to fix it.
Otherwise, as I said, it was fully functional before my move a couple weeks ago, so it would also make a good source of parts.
